last name or who you love, you can make it in america if you try. [applause] ♪ host: president obama in virginia, before that was mitt romney in colorado as this last- minute campaign marathon continues, 48 hours before polls opened in much of the country. it is sunday, november 4. it is not just a presidential election, but the presidential races getting a lot of attention. virginia is the home to the most expensive race in this cycle. "60 minutes" will be looking at the senate, with -- with former minute -- former members saying that it is bogged down with gridlock. republicans are expected to hold on to the majority in the house, but democrats are expected to gain seats. we will begin with this question, very simple, as we wind down this presidential campaign, tell us who will win and why. host: as always, you can join us on facebook, send it to e-mail -- journal@c-span.org, or send us a tweet at twitter.com/c- spanwj. let's go the battleground states and the headlines, courtesy of the newseum this morning. from "the cleveland plain dealer," it is all about ohio. meanwhile, "the s
>> president obama said democracy can be messy and complicated, but these arguments we have are a mark of our liberty. he said in the weeks ahead, he wants to reach out, as megyn said and all of this talk around the country has made him a better president. saying, whether you voted for me the first time or not, we have a long way to go and things to do and the best is yet to come in the united states. i tell you, it's interesting to watch as these pictures coming in live from mccormick place in chicago. the crowd, obviously enthused by this speech. he is trying to reach across the aisle with this speech. the challenge will be, the challenge that lies ahead as this lame-duck congress has to deal with some big issues in the next few weeks. and then tall begins again. it is hard to believe, but the iowa caucuses. >> don't say it. >> are 1,154 and days -- >> you had to go there. >> i did. we just finished! >> i know. i'm in pol particulars. >> it is the reporter. >> i am covering politics. >> i am into taking a break.

it was a referendum on that? >> no, i think obama has a plan in mind and there's nothing wrong with that. it's going move things around and organize health care in a better way. >> i wonder, what do you make of the celebration, especially as we called barack obama. >> it's awesome. >> is it what you thought it would be? >> it's great. >> two satisfied voters. if nothing else, i would argue there are a few more behind me in time square tonight. >> let's go to ron bron stein now. there's so much we'll learn about the parties. one fact i want to throw out at you as you reflect on this victory. you look at the last six elections, democrats have won the popular vote five out of six times just as the republicans did before. the margins hadn't been as big but thaifr been behind this growing groups, minorities, young people, the million yal generation and the college educated white women. it is a coalition that continue toss grow in sxiez allows democrats to overcome very weak performances. you look at florida and virginia where he's right in there punching, he's winning well under 40% of white voter
. a closely fought campaign between president barack obama, and mitt romney, the former massachusetts governor, has come down to this night when tens of millions of voters finally have their say. >> ifill: it's just after 8:00 eastern time and the polls have now closed in almost half the states and the district of columbia, including 15 states that closed just hometowns ago. >> woodruff: there are now some fresh results to share with you, based on exit polling in key precincts and early returns, the networks have called the state of georgia for mitt romney. this is not a surprise. this is a state that went to john mccain four years ago, but just to recap, the state of kentucky has also been called for governor romney. the state of vermont going to barack obama, again, not a surprise. this is a very blue state. west virginia for governor romney. and i believe we have one other state, south carolina. all of these states so far, again, i guess you would kay, gwen, in the predictable column-- and indiana, one other state we have been able to call-- rather the associated press, or the networks. our
or battle till the bloody end here? >> what seems to be happening for president obama is that he has a firewall in the midwest or at least his campaign hopes that. actually, the election results come on tuesday might very well hinge on whether that firewall truly exists or not. according to our polls that you just showed in iowa, president obama has a lead. in wisconsin, it's a smaller lead. some other public polls suggest that as well. however, the romney campaign has made it adamantly clear that according to their polls in iowa, the race is dead even. so it really kind of matters where you actually see the race right now. but it's largely going to come down, as chuck pointed out, to the midwest and that's why you'll see president obama campaigning in ohio, wisconsin, iowa a lot these last five days. >> amy, let me bring you in. i know to mark's point, i believe it was one of the romney advisers or a supporter who said i think the word was "crap" when it comes to polls, at least the ones they didn't like to see. nevertheless, you can disagree with the percentage point here or there,
obama has not met with the republican leaders in the house or the senate since july. >> boo! >> we have a debt crisis coming, we have budget problems, we have economic problems. that's not leadership. we need a leader. now the reason mitt romney and i keep talking about our five-point plan is because we believe we owed you our fellow citizens an actual plan. we owe you solutions, we owe you ideas. real reforms can be had to get a real recovery. we had real recovery in this state in this country let's use that recovery and put people back to work. let's get the keystone pipeline, let's get more gas, more coal and renewables. i tell you what, we know what layoffs are, we have family and friends that we know of who are in their 40s or their 50s or their 60s, prime working years, they're out of a job or they're out of a good job. we need to clear the bureaucracy so they can get the skills they need. and if there are kids who are stuck in inner city schools, whether it's milwaukee or minneapolis. let their parents take them to a school that actually performs so they can get out of poverty an
and president obama are in campaign overdrive in the tossup states that could deliver victory. let's take a look at the governor in iowa, before he headed to ohio, pennsylvania and virginia. hoar's the president in new hampshire, before going to florida, ohio, colorado and eventually, wisconsin. the latest real clear politics average shows the president with a razor edge lead, 2/10 of 1%, new polls show the race too close to call in three battleground states. the president is leading in ohio by the margin of error. take a look at the state of the race in pennsylvania. a survey finds both men tied in pennsylvania. in new hampshire, another tie, that's according to wmur, granite state poll there. let's talk about it with david druker, associate politics editor for roll call. have you ever seen a race this tight this, close to the election? >> vinever seen a race where i honestly couldn't figure out what was going to happen. when the votes are counted and we know who won, i think somebody, somewhere is going to turn out to be very wrong because there is lots of conflicting data out there. >> sure,
run as a moderate from the get-go. suppose obama had faced down his rival in that first debate the way he faced down hurricane sandy? would have, could have, should have, of 2012. and finally, taking it in the gut. one candidate will suffer a personal and profound loss next tuesday night. either the first african-american president or a man who feels a duty to so many others or the man who wanted to redeem his father's own failed presidential bid long ago. i'm chris matthews. welcome to the show. with us new york magazine's john heilemann. cnn's gloria borger. the grio and msnbc's joy reid. and the huffington post howard fineman. first up, here we are in the time capsule. the weekend before the election asking why is this so close? still so unpredictable. both men face big hurdles to getting elected and that's why it's so close. president obama's got the jobless he inherited but can't quite beat. friday's new jobs report was encouraging but gains are still behind what we need. in a reflection of that, 62% of voters say they would like or want major changes in an obama second term. and
in florida, another one showing obama up by five points. [laughter] guest: same weekend? there are two polling firms out there, that there have been real questions about. going back to the point that andrew made, you have to make an assumption that some point. is turnout going to be like it was in 2004? which was even between the parties? or will it be more like 2008, with seven points for the democrats? my preference is to look in between. but what the poll has been doing in particular is looking more at what it was in 2008, which political pollsters will tell you, it will not be at that point. it needs to be somewhere near where the republicans were in 2008. host: the annual crystal ball contest from "the washington post." jim cramer, predicting that mitt romney will get 98 electoral votes, the president, 440? he is the only one predicting a landslide for the president. guest: he is the only one predicting that. i am a democratic partisan, i would love to see that, but i do not think it will be close to that. host: only two are predicting that mitt romney will win, the other 11 sayin

campaign appearances in the state of virginia today. president obama jumped all over the place from wisconsin to nevada, to colorado. both candidates are making their closing arguments. interesting. a closing argument. what is mitt romney's closing argument? his latest incarnation is that he's the guy who reaches across the aisle? >> we have to stop the dividing and the attacking and the demonizing. we've got to reach across the aisle, bring in good democrats with good republicans and finally do the people's business and put the politics behind. >> we just need to stop demonizing, don't we? well, old mittster, show leadership and pick up the phone and call mitch mcconnell. it's interesting for mitt romney to present himself as a guy who works across the aisle while president obama is being label by the tea partyers and everybody else in the right wing as nothing but the divider in chief. romney might want to pick up the phone, you know, give this guy a call, keynote speaker of the republican convention. governor christie spent the last four days praising the president of the united
we've got some live pictures. take a look out of wisconsin where president obama is preparing to speak before a ton of reporters in milwaukee. the president won wisconsin in 2008 with 56% of the vote in that state. this time around, the campaign, though, admits the state could be in play with congressman paul ryan on the gop ticket. we'll bring you the president's remarks live from milwaukee as soon as they get things started there. >>> and after weeks of polls that put the race up in the air, there are signs the president is solidifying a top position in the race. take a look at this. two new nbc news "wall street journal" polls, pairist polls shows the president holding on to a six-point lead in ohio. you know the importance of that state by now. and two points ahead of governor romney in florida. but within the margin of error. also, early voting in florida ends today after the number of early voting days in that state is cut by half this year. 25 million people have already voted early in 34 states and washington, d.c. >>> and back to the frenetic pace on the campaign trai
